This coffee was produced by Juana Mamani and her husband Juan Carlos, this family is well known locally throughout the region for the coffee they grow and the impact they’ve had on specialty coffee production within their community.
Juana Mamani is a first-generation coffee farmer. She bought her six-hectare coffee farm, San Ignacio, when she was just 16 years old after working nearby on her sister’s farm for five years, long enough to save up to buy her own plot. At 23 she went on to win second place in Bolivia’s Cup of Excellence 2007 with a score of 90.78.
The farm participates in the Sol de la Mañana program. This initiative is aimed at improving infrastructure and farming practices in order to create a more sustainable future for coffee in Bolivia. This helps farms through education to increase production yield, reduce diseases, improve coffee processing practices and to train the next generation of young coffee farmers.
